Dental Fillings in Manhattan Beach & Woodland Hills CA
Teeth are naturally covered and protected with enamel, the hardest substance in the human body. Denser than bone and able to withstand immense pressures, tooth enamel can still decay if your teeth are not taken care of properly. Fillings from our dental offices restore damaged teeth and tooth enamel with biocompatible materials such as composite resin or porcelain restorations. These restorative materials are specially formulated to interact safely with the sensitive inner tooth, nerve endings, and tissues, while providing strength that approaches enamel’s strength and stability. A well-placed filling can be undetectable when it comes to the function, integrity, and look of natural teeth.
Any structural loss that results from trauma or cavities will need to be rebuilt with material that is suited for your tooth and your mouth. Your restored tooth will be just as functional as your natural teeth.
The process of restoring a tooth with a filling is quite straightforward. At Modern American Dentistry, our California dentists use Dr. Joel Gould’s proprietary time-saving filling technique for a restoration with improved longevity. After your preliminary checkup and medical history, preparing your tooth includes anesthetic to numb the sensitive nerves around your tooth and removal of the decayed tooth structure. Your dentist will shape the material and polish the final restoration. Your restored tooth works just like your natural tooth and can be re-polished whenever it is necessary.
